I turn to guided meditation or reading something when I'm up at night. I hope your friends, family and yourself can tell you everything is going to be alright. I know for myself that things are and will continue to be alright.
If you have a faith, you could also turn to that as well.
We were created to have companionship, not be alone. I go to a couple glasses of wine or sleep.
Life is stressful for pretty much everyone. You just have to get healthy coping mechanisms to help deal. I run. It helps a great deal. I don't feel too stressed most of the time and I'm a single mom.
It's not just being a single mom, even married moms can get stressed out. It's because you are a mom in general and no one said the work was easy!
I hear ya, sweetie! It can be difficult and feel very lonely sometimes. Find ways to relieve the stress some. Sometimes I'll go for a walk or bike ride, or I'll work on one of my hobbies (crochet, knitting, jewelry making). Just remember it is perfectly ok to ask a friend or family member to help out with your kids so you can get a little "me time." Took me a long time to be able to do that, but it helps tremendously.
